The work was relax and the people there, where super nice, but the accommodation was in the garage for a long time...Praia da Luz is beautiful !! I loved it !



Como experiencia muy enriquecedora. Pero en cuanto a las condiciones y a la atención nefastas. Dormía en un garaje con muchísimo polvo mientras los clientes vivían como reyes con las habitaciones súper limpias y sin faltarles nada en el desayuno. Se lo dije varias veces y ni siquiera se molestó en limpiarlo, yo tengo un problema de asma con los ácaros y en esas condiciones me pongo muy mal del pecho, cosa que le dio igual. Una noche me dio un ataque fuerte de asma, tuve problemas en el Hospital de allí para que me atendieran y me ignoró cuando se lo dije. Sólo miran unicamente por su beneficio



Foi minha 1º experiência como WP e não poderia ter sido melhor! Fui muito bem recebida e e acomodada num ótimo quarto privado (e de fato não seria problema caso não fosse assim, pois o ambiente geral é incrível e qualquer acomodação seria bem aceita pois tudo lá é amplo e ventilado). As tarefas foram super tranquilas e as horas bem distribuídas , o que me deixou tempo para passeios e relax, alguns a pé e ainda tem um ponto de ônibus bem em frente. O mais dificil foi dizer adeus aos meus novos amigos. Tudo foi maravilhoso! Recomendo de olhos fechados:)
